New Discoveries In Natures Ability To Order Universe
Published Feb 1988
In this critically acclaimed book, I explain how recent scientific advances are transforming our understanding of the emergence of complexity and organization in the universe. Melding a variety of ideas and disciplines from biology, fundamental physics, computer science, mathematics, genetics, and neurology, I trace the source of the universe's creative potency, exploring the new paradigm (replacing the centuries-old Newtonian view of the universe) that recognizes the collective and holistic properties of physical systems and the power of self-organization. I present the laws of physics in the role of a "blueprint," embodying a grand cosmic scheme that progressively unfolds as the universe develops.
